Center for Healthcare Policy and Research
Under the direction of Joy Melnikow, M.D., M.P.H., the CHPR is a valuable resource to researchers in these areas who need assistance in grants development, project implementation and management, or financial administration. Center members work with our experienced teams to move research projects through all phases, from proposal to final reporting, and everything in-between.
We are an Organized Research Unit, bringing together the talents of researchers representing a broad spectrum of disciplines from the School of Medicine, the Davis Campus, and other organizations. With this multidisciplinary approach, the CHPR helps investigators wishing to examine questions pertinent to health services access, delivery, cost and outcomes, with an emphasis on healthcare policy.
For more than a decade, the Center has provided the administrative resources and technical expertise crucial to implementing this kind of focused, collaborative research. The Center has provided educational opportunities to students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and has, through seminars, symposia, expert testimony and consultation, provided opportunities to inform those responsible for making decisions that affect healthcare policy.
